In answer to the original question "are you a bodger?"
No, I am just a cowboy. ;)

To the tune of "The Streets of Laredo", q.g.
I see by your outfit
that you are a cowboy,
you see by my outfit
that I'm a cowbow too,
we see by our outfits
that we are both cowboys.
If you had an outfit
you would be a cowboy too.

Bodgers read: if you had a drawknife you would be a bodger too. :)

Does this remind anybody else of Time Team hero Phil Harding (flint napping?):

Or perhaps Robert Plant c. 1970, or Jon Pertwee.
